the green fades
to a deep blue and then
grey, a dysfunction
of directional seasons:
spring, summer, autumn...
winter.

boughs break,
cradles tumble,
childhoods are crushed
and lay broken, smashed,
in the dirt and leaves:
irreparable.

people bustle on,
hurried, harried,
their parcels clutched close,
like fragile newborns,
hands clasped and heads bent
in a modern semblance of prayer.

Jesus will not hear them.
He is not God, but a Pied Piper,
luring the innocents
into a pasture of slaughter,
all because the rest refused
to pay His price in blood.

Carnage Nation.
revelry in suffering and death.
"i love it when they scream in terror."
"run if you must, but i will spill
your blood all along the streets
and this pristine
white,
government-issued
pavement."

come one, come all!
designer bags,
bodies, minds, hearts...
all for three small payments
of trees and ink,
flesh and blood.

sell your soul.
bustle, rustle, hustle,
the devil at your heels.
complete the oldest of trades,
buy-and-sell society.
enjoy now, perish later in hellfire.

kill with a smile
and love with a knife.
we are both wolves and sheep,
devouring one another without remorse.
show your sharp-tipped teeth
as they drip with the blood
of your daughters and your sons.
